Platinum Games reveals Legend of Korra gameplay

Expects a single playthrough to last about four hours.

Bayonetta and Vanquish developer Platinum Games has revealed the first gameplay footage of its upcoming Legend of Korra-based video game.

Obtained by IGN during San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, this footage shows players taking control of titular character Korra in this follow-up to Avatar: The Last Airbender.

It appears to be a third-person hack-and-slash affair in the vein of Bayonetta or MadWorld, only you're hacking and slashing foes with elemental powers like water, earth, wind and fire.

There are also on-rails sections where you ride Korra's polar bear pooch pal Naga through the streets collecting glowing elemental goodies.

Platinum said the game is expected to last about four hours for a single playthrough, but players are expected to play through it up to three times as you'll unlock more powers and higher difficulty levels as you go.

The Legend of Korra is set between the second and third seasons of the Nickelodeon show and is due this autumn as a downloadable affair on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
